You can try to replace it, but all it does is read the pressure. If it really is low and making noise then it's mechanical

Thank you, I drove 105 miles with no oil pressure, not knocking. I start it up it wants to iddle at 2000rpm's and reads no oil pressure. I have never heard of that.


If it's not knocking after 105 miles then it's either the sending unit (sensor) or the gauge. The high idle is gonna be a different problem, I'd get your codes read.
